    Get the XMR for sure if you can squeeze the price tag. The others are great utility machines but you’ll be blown away with the handling and performance of a BRP twin. If the machine was just for fishing and work, just about anything would be fine. But since you trail ride as well, you’ll love it. Tires are great in snow too.

    didnt read through this whole thread so not sure if this was given already but a little tip on the whole fill out this form for a price deal. I used this method when buying a new truck.

    Create a new email account and use a fake phone number. they will email you prices.

    Sort of funny story on that but also kind of a dick move on my part – i knew what truck i wanted to buy for over a year before i pulled the trigger. every month or so i would check up on prices, partly out of curiously and party just to know what the prices are at when i was ready to buy for negotiating. i would fill out the forms on every dealership from here to Fargo to Milwaukee about once or twice a month using the same phone number. Finally one guy emailed me back and said “you have got to stop using this phone number. we keep calling this guy and hes is DUCKING PISSED!” I just wrote back and said then stop requiring a phone number for pricing and how do you think i would feel if i used my real number

    From my experience Bucky has a very good point, I was looking for a Can-am not to long ago and I spent hours online looking, made a spreadsheet and everything comparing prices and dealers. Visited a few around the metro and didn’t get the warm fuzzy feeling from any. Finally bought one from Bessers bike barn in Sauk Rapids and couldn’t have been happier, within 2 minutes of stepping in the door the owner was there shaking my hand asking what he can help me with. That didn’t happen anywhere “local.” Others I liked were Hilmerson Sports (little falls), Trueman Welter (buffalo) and Ollie’s (Alexandria) that gave me the best service as a potential buyer.

    I bought a Honda Gold Wing from them years ago. You are correct they were a pleasure to deal with. They are the former owners of “The Honda House” in St. Cloud who sold 1000’s of bikes.

    The xmr is the first on my list

    Not specific to atv/utv, but i see much more of this with a lot of equipment. I’m had considered upgrading a tractor and holy crap was it an inconvenience to stop in person. Was insane to have so many people at their desk, but couldn’t give me a price. Felt like they were sizing me up for what they could squeeze out of me.

    I will not fill out their form emails on their site. Just leads to an abundance of junk mail. So I just drafted an email and sent it to their contact email. Few I never heard from, a few were simple emails back with price, and a couple that were an absolute pita to communicate with

    Also a good way to prank a buddy, especially if you mix in some adult dating sites….I heard.

    My father had a 650 outlander and it’s a very nice machine. I wouldn’t want the XMR model though since you lose the front rack space since the radiator is there. Front rack is handy for hauling things especially if your using it for ice fishing

    This got me thinking so I randomly searched some new atvs. I nearly puked when I saw what they cost. Even if money is never an issue for someone, that’s a lot of $$$ for a small machine with tons of plastic.

    I bought my Honda Foreman from Bessers Bike Barn. Great salesman and service. I will definitely be purchasing my next wheeler from them as well.

    I’m in the market for a new atv in the next few months also and plan to buy from Larson’s as they have treated me well in the past. I just called and talked to Chris the other day. Honda house/bessers would be the next place I would talk to as They have been fine in the past also.

    I’ve heard a bunch of good things about EPG’s dealer Mies in Watkins.

    I bought my can am from Willmar motor sports and they were good to deal with.
